Explore Features of the Nike NFL Jersey

In 2012, Nike became the NFL's new uniform supplier after previously sporting uniforms by Reebok. The last time Nike made NFL jerseys was back in the 1990s. Most teams have adopted the new NFL Elite 51 uniform featuring a stronger, lighter fabric for increased performance. For the fans, NFLShop.com offers three tiers of the new Nike NFL jersey: Elite, Limited, and Game jersey. This NFL Nike jersey buying guide will help you decide which jersey is perfect for you.

Nike Jerseys

NFL Elite Jersey

The new Nike NFL Elite jersey is based off the NFL Elite 51 uniforms adopted by most teams and is closest to what the players wear on the field.

  • Flywire strength to resist stretching around the neck
  • Zoned stretched fabric
  • Flexible twill numbers
  • Strategic ventilation over body's heat zones
  • Advanced, water repelling fabric
  • No-tag neck label

Four teams opted out of the Flywire collar (Cowboys, Patriots, Texans and Steelers). 5 teams opted out of the Elite 51 transformation altogether and kept their original design (Raiders, Packers, Eagles, Falcons, and Panthers).
